Somalia: CERF and SHF support in 2017 (as of 5 March 2018)

With US$89 million in coordinated allocations
from the Central Emergency Response Fund
(CERF) and the Somalia Humanitarian Fund
(SHF), OCHA-managed pooled funds helped
humanitarian partners in Somalia prevent famine
in 2017.
By leveraging their comparative advantages –
such as CERF’s disbursement speed and CBPF’s
direct funding for local Non-Governmental
Organizations (NGOs) – the humanitarian
community rapidly scaled up humanitarian
action and was able to deliver a stronger
collective response.
